Redhead Bella Thorne Wears (Gasp) Pink

Redhead Bella Thorne Wears (Gasp) Pink

Did anyone else see the July issue of Glamour wherein they had a spread about the do’s and don’t of wearing pink? And then a picture of Bella Thorne wearing pink? It had a caption about how pink (hot pink specifically) is a DO for redheads, which Bella Thorne proves!

The problem? She’s not even a real fucking redhead. You can SEE her dark roots in the picture! Her eyes are way too brown, and her eyebrows are way too dark and her complexion is way too not-translucent for her to be the go-to example of what redheads can and cannot wear. Clearly, this was written (and approved) by a BLONDE or a BRUNETTE. Dear Glamour: YOU NEED A (REAL) RED-HAIRED CONSULTANT/EDITOR ON YOUR STAFF. Not a daywalker, not a bottled copper, but a real, MC1R-carrying ginger who worships cloudy days and indoor activities.

I don’t get why people don’t realize redheads CANNOT wear pink. I recently received a Stitch Fix with a hot pink shirt, despite telling them I was a redhead. I sent it back, very clearly stating that color was a major redhead no-no. Magenta can be OK, but save the hot pink for Barbies. When I was younger, I had a piano teacher who formerly had red hair (come to think of it, two of my piano teachers formerly had red hair), and she once complimented my red shirt because her mom never allowed her to wear red, orange or pink. Although that was obviously a more conservative time (she was past retirement age), that should say something about the fact the redheads shouldn’t wear pink is timeless wisdom.

What do you think? Do you wear pink? Do you abhor Glamour’s depiction of Bella Thorne as an example for copper-tressed women?

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
